Media Arts Production – Emerson College
Teacher’s Assistant -Trapology Research Institute
- As a student at Emerson Boston studying Media Arts Production and living on campus Erin was looking for a fun job for college students in Boston. She ended up joining the Trapology Boston team at the beginning of 2020 as a part-time Game Master.
- Her welcoming personality and unmatchable charisma allowed her to flourish in a customer service based industry. Honing in on skills from a Speech Communication class, Erin was able to deliver introductions to games that made you feel like you were actually inside the story before even seeing the set.
- Working in such a dynamic environment allowed her to sharpen up some writing skills as well. “I would also say that working in an interactive job really helps with writing because you can see how people naturally react to situations.”
ALEXANDRA (LEXI) FOULTZ
Screenwriting – Emerson College
Alumna – Trapology Research Institute
- A Boston transplant and a screenwriting student, Lexi joined our team as a part-time Game Master and was able to help create, develop and refine many of the stories that make up the diverse tales.
- Storytelling helps blend the world of escape rooms and imagination together. It helps create a more immersive and enjoyable experience for everyone.
- “I’m studying screenwriting at school (Emerson College) and knowing that the Trapology team gave me numerous opportunities to put my ‘out-there’ imagination to work. I was able to write a handful of the room intros and for those that were taped, I was allowed to see the final product sometimes within hours after writing them. Overall, I think working at Trapology taught me a lot about what inspires, scares, excites and in general entertains people, which will prove to be very valuable knowledge as I leave school and enter the entertainment industry”
Music Industry – Northeastern University
Professor – Trapology Research Institute
- A New Mexico Native, Craig has found himself at Northeastern’s campus to begin his college journey in the Music Industry field and his part-time position at Trapology.
- Craig’s passion and skill for creating unique sounds and quirky ideas were immediately noticed by his managers. Escape rooms rely on the most subtle details in order to tie a room together and Craig was able to create perfectly mixed soundtracks for the games. Whether it’s a funky, hip beat for a coffee shop or an old-time piano number for a runaway train, Craig was able to bring customers into an experience just with sound.
